I can't disable Rootkit detection
« on: July 23, 2019, 04:50:21 PM »
Hi.

I want to disable the rootkit detection in the Core Shield. To test something. But it won't let me. When I uncheck the box Avast immediately returns me to the main status screen and the setting hasn't been changed.

I can uncheck the nested exploit detection box, but not the main "Enable Rootkit detection" box. It won't work.

The thing I'm trying to test is a weird behavior of my PC where when I start a program it randomly sometimes sits there for about 10 seconds doing nothing. Waiting. No notable CPU activity, no disk activity, no network activity. Seemingly. So I want to test if this is caused by some component of Avast Free.

But as it is I can't seem to even test this.

How was this released, as a manual program update reports the program is up to date, but the UI is still 1.0.382.  Are you talking about the current beta or the regular program version ?

Hi Dave, the UI has its own/separate update channel. It might take a while to propagate to all servers.

Hi. I just checked for updates manually. UI is version 1.0.390. Still has the bug. I'll check later today.

Thanks for the fast response.

Thanks, still no joy as yet though.

I'm still stuck on UI 1.0.387, even after manual update attempts that came to nothing.

Update: Just did a Restart (boot) and now have UI 1.0.390, but not 394 with the fix yet.
